Math
AZ.4.OA.A.3.1: The Highly Proficient student can solve a variety of problems based on the multiplication principle of counting. 1. Represent a variety of counting problems using arrays, charts, and systematic lists, e.g., tree diagram. 2. Analyze relationships among representations and make connections to the multiplication principle of counting.
2.M.NBT.A.01: The Highly Proficient student can determine that a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right in real world contexts.
4.M.NBT.A.02: The Highly Proficient student can use place value understandings to read, write, and compare multidigit whole numbers in real world contexts.
4.M.NBT.A.03: The Highly Proficient student can use place value understanding to round multidigit whole numbers in real world contexts.
5.M.NBT.B.04: The Highly Proficient student can fluently add and subtract multidigit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
4.M.NBT.B.05: The Highly Proficient student can use and explain different multiplication strategies when solving 4 digit by 1 and 2 digit real world problems.
4.M.NBT.B.06: The Highly Proficient student can use and explain different division strategies when dividing 4 digit dividends by 1 digit divisors with remainders.
8.M.OA.A.01: The Highly Proficient student can interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
4.M.OA.A.02: The Highly Proficient student can solve and create multiplication and division word problems using drawings and equations with a variable.
Reading
1.R.RL.01: The Highly Proficient student can quote accurately from a text and refer to key details and examples when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing complex inferences from the text.
4.R.RL.02: The Highly Proficient student can determine an implicitly stated theme, or multiple themes, of a story, drama, or poem; comprehensively summarizes the text.
4.R.RL.03: The Highly Proficient student can describe in depth and analyze a complex character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on implicit, specific details in the text.
4.R.RL.05: The Highly Proficient student can analyze how major differences between poems, drama and prose affect meaning, and refer to complex structural elements.
Writing
AZ.4.L.01: The Highly Proficient student can write and organize one or more paragraphs about a topic.
4.L.01: The Highly Proficient student can demonstrate strong command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing.
3.L.02d: The Highly Proficient student can demonstrate strong command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing; uses commas and quotation marks to mark direct speech and quotations from a text; uses a comma before a coordinating conjunction in a compound sentence; spells low frequency and above grade level words correctly, consulting references as needed.
4.L.06: The Highly Proficient student can acquire and use accurately grade appropriate general academic and domain specific words and phrases, including those that signal precise actions, emotions, or states of being (e.g., quizzed, whined, stammered) and that are basic to a particular topic (e.g., wildlife, conservation, and endangered when discussing animal preservation).
5.W.02: The Highly Proficient student can write informative/explanatory texts to thoroughly examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly and completely.
